Charlotte Conspiracy Attorney
North Carolina Lawyer Defending Accusations Of Conspiracy
Conspiracy charges provide prosecutors with a great deal of latitude. In many cases, hearsay rules intended to protect the defendant from unsubstantiated claims do not apply at trial. As a result, statements made by co-conspirators can be entered in as evidence against the accused.
Even if a defendant did not participate in the actual crime itself, if found guilty of conspiracy, they could receive the same sentence as the person who carried out the crime. In certain cases, even if a crime was not committed, those accused of conspiracy can still be sentenced as if the crime had actually occurred.
At The Law Office of Kevin L. Barnett, our experienced criminal defense attorney knows how conspiracy cases are prepared and prosecuted by state and federal authorities. Working with our own investigators and experts, we look for ways to expose groundless assumptions on the part of police and prosecutors and, if necessary, put their case on trial.
Due to the fact that the rules of evidence are different in conspiracy cases, it's essential that you work with an experienced criminal defense lawyer who understands how the court treats conspiracy cases. To schedule a free, confidential consultation, contact us today.

Facing Federal Prosecutors
Most federal crime cases involve conspiracy charges as well. Often, federal prosecutors will attempt to arrange a plea bargain in exchange for testimony against others. Since hearsay rules don't always apply in conspiracy cases, it's important to work with attorneys who know how to discredit witnesses.
At The Law Office of Kevin L. Barnett, we have the resources needed to thoroughly investigate the charges against our client. We expose shepherding by the prosecution, questionable interrogation techniques, and misconduct by investigators.
